Shutter Cables


We provide shutter cables for most camera makes/models for use with our triggers. When you order a shutter cable, we include an extension cable and adapter, if needed, to convert the cable for use with the 3.5mm stereo jack on our triggers.


Select your camera make/model below and note the corresponding ID. If you don't find your model listed, compare the socket on your camera to the photos below. The photos will enlarge by clicking on them. If you are still unable to determine the type of plug that you need, please contact us. If you already have a shutter release and want to convert it for use with our triggers, this page may help.


All shutter cables, which include extension cords and adapters (if needed), are $12.95.
